    Signed up for this because of the locator/remote wiping functionality. But am exceptionally underwhelmed by the rest of the functionality. Really lame.

    I'll spend the money on apps and accesssories. I don't keep any info on it of much value to thieves,(who wants Auntie Barbara's hotmail account, anyway?) but the ability to brick it if stolen would give me a certain rueful satisfaction.

    I never had gps security on my laptop or netbook I don't see why all of a sudden why I would spend $100 Yr!!!! I look at this like a big phone. Windows and Android have programs that do the same thing for free!

    I already have a mobile me account so I do use it with my iPad. Good Reader is a great app and let's me access my backed up idisk programs from my iPad. It's a very efficient way to have access to a lot of your files without preloading them on the iPad.

    It's not all about "gps security"

    It's 20 gigs of hosting in the cloud, email addy, syncing contacts, emails, calendars, bookmarks ect across multiple devices and a photo gallery that has public and private options per photo album. The remote wipe and find my device features are nice also, but not the whole thing.

    I have it because I like that it keeps my mac, ipad and iphone all in sync plus it allows me one stop shopping for sharing pictures with my family across the US.

    No. It seems to me WAY too expensive for what it is.

    Dropbox, box.net or Google Docs (when Documents to Go for iPad ships) are pretty good alternatives if you don't need a lot of space.

    I use mobile me with my work. I love it I use the calendar and. Publish my iWeb. I use the mail and really all aspects of it. The iDisk can sometimes be a pain in the butt. But I like it.

    I love Dropbox.
    I have not used box.net.

    Is that more of a backup service?
